“Resolve to edge in a little reading every day, if it is but a single sentence. If you gain fifteen minutes a day, it will make itself felt at the end of the year.” ~ Horace Mann
I haven't shared a good quote in a while and this one sort of goes along with my snail's pace of reading this year. In past winters, I've consumed books as quickly as I could carry them out of the library, but I've found myself taking things slower this year. I'm purposely not signing up for any reading challenges as I don't want any pressure to compel myself to reach a certain number of books read. But, despite numerous other things in life that pull me away from my passion for pages (and my enjoyment of blogging!), I like this quote because it fits my current reading goals of the year. I'm not going to push myself to compete with past years when I finished 80, 90, or 100+ works in under twelve months, but I do want to focus on reading every day.
And I do think I will feel it at year's end.
Do you set reading goals for yourself each year? What do you think about the goal of just a little bit of reading each day?
